Blanchard, C

Blanchard, C.

a Baptist minister, was born in Maine about the year 1790. For several years after he was licensed he preached as an itinerant minister, and was ordained pastor of the Second Church in Shapleigh, Me., in 1823, where he remained five years, 1823 to 1828, and then took charge of the Second Church in Nobleborough. The labors of Mr. Blanchard were greatly blessed. In a revival which occurred in 1833, seventy-five were added to the Church by baptism. He remained with this Church until 1836, when he removed to Augusta, and was pastor there one year; he then went to Orono, and took charge of the infant Church in that place, which in 1845 had increased to some seventy members. Beyond this point the writer is unable to trace the history of Mr. Blanchard. He was a most useful and successful minister of his denomination in his native state. See Millett, Hist. of the Baptists of Maine, p. 436. (J. C. S.)
